administrative code chapters 31 to revise the c-e-q-a appeal procedures that we administer locally through the administrative code. the changes that i know about from this particular legislation, that it would change the c-e-q-a appeal period so that would be triggered by the first project approval as opposed to the last project approval which is currently the case. citizens have the right to appeal all c-e-q-a decisions but they would have to do so in a timely manner that would be limited what we see now sometimes months or years after the first decision. so, there's some changes to deal with that. the legislation would also increase the requirements for public noticing of these c-e-q-a discriminations so the public would know when a determination has been made and would have the opportunity to appeal that. and this particular ordinance is administrative code, so, we only have 30 days to review this particular one and for you to weigh in before the board could potentially take action. our 30-day hold would end on november 16th and i believe the commission would probably like to hear this
to visit, we set up a coordinating council, and this is a council made up of local residents, neighborhood associations, merchant groups, churches, nonprofit organizations, city officials, and first responders. the task of this local coordinating council was to figure out how do we deal with that first 72 hours and how do we recover? and we've learned an awful lot as we've developed these relationships and how do we avoid the mistakes that were made after hurricane katrina? but what we've also found is that by simply convening these groups, we are preparing ourselves not just for what happens after a disaster, but we are literally building our community today. with this coordinating council, we're figuring out how to fix the potholes, how to deal with the literally million people who are going to descend on our neighborhood this weekend, how to take care of the needs that we have, not just in the future after the big one, but today in 2012. and by bringing us together today, by tackling and talking about the problems we'll deal with tomorrow, we're actually achieving many things here at th
you but state and local capabilities and federal capabilities for this fire season. with that i'm going to go down the line. as we get to our military partners i'd ask if there's other technologies that you think that you have that you want to share about that may be helpful as we start to get into fire season. please share those with us. ray, if you'd like to start. >> sure, thank you. first off, thanks for being here, it's my first time being here and i think it's an outstanding venue to meet the cooperating agencies and talk about policies and ways we can improve our response to the public that we serve. we look at title 10, title 32 resources in all aspects, all risk venue, like i said, not only aircraft but we utilize ltax for our agreements with la county fire, to mobilize fire engines to catalina island. we look at resources for debris cleaning, i found out there's a desalization battalion for fresh water, that's an i object credible resource for an earthquake. there's a variety of dod resources that cal fire can provide in a statewide environment. i think the bigge

of this particular proposal, one thing i want to bring to city hall is a locally sourced healthy food insurance. santa clara county recently band all vending machines from their county facilities and i think we can lead by example, whether it's city hall, hospitals or our schools we should insist on healthy foods and healthy food choices and teaching our children how to grow their own food and cooking. so i would like to see an increase in community garden and an increase in the city with leadership around this issue. >> mr. everest is this your third or fourth use of the time card? >> i know i am out of these. [ laughter ] well, if we finish early i will come back to you. >> all right. >> now a question for miss breed and mr. resignato. san francisco currently provides free or low-cost health care to residents who can't afford private health insurance and do not qualify for coverage from the state or federal government? do you agree with funding this for employees who spend less for their employees health care than what the city believes is adequate? >> yes. i think it's important that w
the same type of really local level where they tried to take over local level offices. the tea party -- i did not see the same kind of activity. the tea party went at local levels. a lot of times you didn't see it. the fact that ted cruise out of texas won the republican nomination is because of their local tea party group that mobilized at the very local level, the microlevel, below the radar. even polls in texas showed his opponent was leading in the polls, but then came election day and ted cruz swept and one reason was because of those institutions that had been created that were durable. however if those institutions have not been set up in other places, i don't know exactly where they have and haven't, but where they haven't i would suspect to see a waning tea party activity. but even if people aren't organizing, that doesn't mean that the sentiment isn't there. this question about are you a supporter of the tea party movement is almost similar to are you a supporter of the occupy wall street movement? it's a way for people to identify a unique set of views that we don't get by just

? >> the primary responsibility is at the state and local level. i agree with arne duncan. some ideas he has put forward on race to the top. some of them i agree with and congratulate him on pursuing that. the federal government can get state and local schools. i wanted the kids who are getting federal dollars from title 1 -- disabled kids or lower income kids, i went and to be able to go to the kids at -- to the school of their choice. i would have them follow the child and let the parent and child decide where to send their student. >> how do you see the federal government's responsibility to improve the quality of education? >> it has a significant role to play. we have worked with republican and democratic governors to initiate major reforms. they are having an impact right now. this is where budgets matter. budgets reflect choices. when gov. romney indicates that he wants to cut taxes and potentially benefit people like me and him, to pay for it we have to initiate significant cuts in federal support for education, that makes a difference. his running mate congressman ryan put forward a bud
